There are a total of approximately 64,500 parking spaces in the
Downtown area. Seventy-four percent of the spaces are classified
as off-street public; 20 percent are classified as off-street private;
and the remaining six percent are classified as on-street. Of the
total off-street spaces, 60 percent are located in parking structures
and 40 percent are in surface lots. When the parking supply is
compared to existing office and retail square footage Downtown,
it computes to 1.9 spaces per 1,000 square feet of development.
This parking ratio falls within the national range (1.6-2.0) of
peak-parking requirements in a downtown with Denver’s current
level of transit usage.
Wonder what it looks like for SLC... or for Portland. (See earlier post).
